The mission of the Hot Springs Parks and Recreation Department is to actively encourage, provide, promote, and protect quality leisure, recreation and cultural opportunities, facilities, and environments that are essential for the health and enhancement of the lives of our residents and visitors.
The vision of the Parks and Recreation Department is about families, it’s about neighborhoods and homes, it’s about economic impact, it’s about giving those we serve an opportunity to become more than they are – physically, mentally, and spiritually.
It’s about lifestyle, art, ballparks, environment, encouragement, and wellness. It is about quality of life. Hot Springs Parks and Trails is an oasis of clean, safe, well-funded, and maintained interconnected parks, open spaces, trails, and sports complexes.
Our facilities and programs are accessible, equitable, and affordable. Hot Springs Parks and Recreation enhances nurtures and protects opportunities that stimulate the mind, body, and spirit for residents and visitors.
